The railways in Zylanda are organisized by this company. The Zylanda Iisnwech Companii (ZIC) is owned by the state of Zylanda and founded 1839 with the construction of the first railway-line from Elegantia to Aaby, which is opened 1842-05-05. Til today this is the busiest railway line in Zylanda (route # 70).


Technical parameters

The spur is the normal spur of 1,43 m. Normally are layed two tracks, only few routes have only one tracks. The main routes are lay out with four tracks, from Elegantia to Aaby six tracks (two for freight). Four tracks are from Elegantia to Kraynbrygg, from Elegantia to Fiif Wejn and Elegantia - Knee.

Platform at the stations are 400 m for main-line trains (15 coaches) or 250 m (for local trains).

Trains

There are two sorts of passenger trains. The "local" stops at all stations on the route and the "direct" trains stops only at greater towns rondabout all 50 or 100 km. The speed of the "direct" trains are from 120 to 250 km - as the tracks allows in look of curves and the gradient.


History

Earlyer as in Latina in Zylanda was build the first railway-line. The 105 km from Elegantia to Aaby was opened at 1842-05-05. Now the route is 101 km, because the way from the new station in Elegantia is shorter. This line now is named with route # 35.

In the first time the railway station of Elegantia lay direct at the shore in the middle of the town and the tracks ended there. To build the line, a row of houses are demolished for the right of way, so that this was the reason of some riots at this time.

Since 1906 the main station of Elegantia lays more in the suburbs of the city and has 12 through going tracks, so that trains can run p.e. from Charity via Elegantia to Rensenbrink. But most trains ended and started in "Elegantia Centraal Stazion" (Elegantia Central Station).

Next early railways build in Zylanda are

  • 1844 - 47 = Elegantia - Gupys - Charity (now route # 16)
  • 1845 - 46 = Aaby-Stad - Storby (SK) - Rensenbrink (now part of route # 31)
  • 1847 - 51 = Elegantia - Lessenthien - Swattnkamp - Pentapolis (now route # 26)
  • 1850 - 52 = Elegantia - Krayenbrygg - Ferry - Søltholm - boundary to Loredian (now route # 11)
